Thornton Wilder, who wrote OUR TOWN and THE MATCHMAKER (the basis of HELLO, DOLLY!) finished THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH the month following the attack on Pearl Harbor. As with OUR TOWN, he played with theatrical conventions while telling the story of George and Maggie Antrobus and their children as they attempt to survive such perils as the Ice Age, the Great Flood, and World War. How will humanity pull through? By the skin of our teeth.
Since 1995, the Fat Tuesday Debutantes have been entertaining audiences all over campus. We play a variety of improvisation games such as those seen on “Whose Line is it anyway?” and “Wild N Out.” We usually practice for an hour each week, Tuesdays at 5 pm in SPH 127. You can receive 1 hour of TH100/300 credit. We perform 3 shows per semester for the public. Our semi-annual charity event, "Will Act For Food," has been very successful and is about to celebrate 20 years of helping local food pantries and ARCO.
All performances begin at 10 p.m. in Huntington Recital Hall.
